I Spy Coffee

It's SPRINGTIME which means it's time for another Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop!!!

This time I used the freebie Finding Coffee digi by Sheri Russ at super sponsor STAMPlorations.  I couldn't help but think of the "I Spy" books while hunting for the coffee cups and coffee pots among the flowers.  So I went with that idea, coloring only the cups and pots.  I used watercolor pencils in pastel colors to keep with the spring theme.

Warm Cocoa

It's SPRINGTIME which means it's time for another Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop!!!

For my first entry, I'm combining a JessCraftsDigitals freebie mug with a Limited Runs boy image from Nikki's Progressive Challenge.  (I was unable to participate in the challenge so I'm using the image now.)  Background star paper, sentiment, and picture frame are from Imagine That! digistamp.

How about a little warm milk at bedtime?  Could be warm cocoa.....  

This is a totally digital composition.  I used PSE to digitally color the images and layer them into a 6x8 scrapbook page.  A picture of my grandson will go where the stars currently reside.

Down Memory Lane with Imagine That! Digistamp

Wishing Kristy a very happy fourth birthday of her business, Imagine That Digistamp.  I love being on her design team and using her digital products.

Here's some info from the blog:

Over the past four years, Kristy has created an incredible array of digital goodies. You can find everything you need in the store--digistamps, sentiments, papers--for every kind of card imaginable--birthday, get well, sympathy, thinking of you, holidays and occasions, etc. Well, its Imagine That Digistamp's fourth birthday this month and we were thinking that it would be the perfect opportunity to take a little walk down memory lane. Over the next two days we are going to showcase our DT members' favourite sets! We hope that you'll enjoy this little trip through time.

Please do visit the blog to see what's showcased by the design team.

I'm up in the first blog post going down memory lane.

After guest designing in the third quarter, I joined the design team on October 1, 2016 as a Craft-astic Connoisseur. 

This was my first official Design Team make on my LOTSA SCRAP blog

I used the pumpkin outline and the sentiment from the Scarecrow set found in the store HERE.

It's hard to narrow down Kristy's images to one favorite set, but I just love The Great Outdoors because of the camper which reminds me of my sister's Airstream Bambi.  I used it in this Christmas card for my sister and her husband.  The camper was a bonus because I originally got the set to use in Girl Scout camp scrapbook layouts. 

The Great Outdoors                                   Snow Mice

Christmas Sled                                         Owl With Robin

There's more!!!!!!!!  There will be another memory post (from other design team members) at 8pm today (Pacific Time Zone) and then two tomorow, one at 8am and one at 8pm.  Be sure to stop by The Creative Playground blog to see all the design team memories!  And while you're there, be sure to comment to win!  DO THIS ON THEIR BLOG, NOT MINE!!!!

Easter easel card

Time for a new monthly customer challenge from the Creative Playground at Imagine That! digis by Kris.  Please head there for all the details and more inspiration from the design team.

Here's my design team make .

I used the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers to create the easel card HERE

I used the pre-colored digi from the set and then added parts of the outline digi to add my own colors of red and lilac.  (The color red is very important in Polish culture.).  Fussy cut the banner and leaves and used dimensional adhesive for 3-D effect; Copic markers.  I just happend to have some red flowers in my stash that matched perfectly.
